Normandy rocks!

Normandy: D-Day landing beaches, Bayeux Tapestry, world-famous food & drink, Impressionist painters …and music festivals! With over 40 events taking place this year, the region is a real hot spot for music lovers and has become a popular destination for international festival-goers who want to combine the fun and excitement of outdoor music events with a short break away.

Normandy has it all!

Where else can you get to see headliners such as Foals, Phoenix, Placebo or The Prodigy before exploring iconic Mont Saint-Michel? Catch indie talents Princess Nokia, Parcels or Shame on the beach after jumping in a vintage 2CV to tour the land of cider and cheese? Watch the sun set over Etretat's famous white cliffs at a free festival on the seafront? Dance to Martin Garrix’s EDM hits in the heart of the French countryside?

All across Normandy, festival vibes will surge through small towns, buzzing cities and spectacular coastline. Even with artists flying in from all over the world, you’ll still get to showcase real Normandy with an abundance of local food and drink at most events. Cider and Camembert anyone?

Headlining acts, picture-postcard scenery, great facilities, mouth-watering food and surprisingly inexpensive tickets: all this just a short hop away from the UK!
